The events which unfolded took place in an era in which the notion of football hooliganism and travelling away fans was still a new concept in Turkey. In a game between Zonguldakspor and Bursaspor, Bursaspor supporter groups travelled in convoys of buses to the city of Zonguldak. Bursaspor lost the game and their supporters subsequently stormed the pitch.

The football-playing turkey

by Helen_Back

The pro football team had just finished their daily practice session when a large turkey came strutting onto the field. While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and demanded a tryout.
Everyone stared in silence as the turkey caught pass after pass and ran right through the defensive line. When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, "You're terrific!!! Sign up for the season, and I'll see to it that you get a huge bonus."
"Forget the bonus," the turkey said, "All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?"

After 37 Years I Quit Smoking.......

by freedomrider

And now I want to start either agressive walking or running. I haven't ran since I played football back in 1969 for my HS team! Luckily I've always walked to some extent throughout my life. What is more beneficial? I am 54 and thankfully in good shape with a 34" waist and 50" chest (thanks to lots of hard work as a carpenter for many years).
It's only been about 1 1 /2 months but considering I could never stop before, it is quite an accomplishment for me. I smoked KOOLS since I got drafted in 1970! I went cold turkey. I am also a recovering alcoholic/addict (sober 4 years) and I just used the principles of AA, I can't have just ONE cigarette, just like a drink or drug

Be sure to eat lots of turkey, argue about Creationism with your Grandmother, discuss politics with your Father in law(If you have one), tell your mother you are going off the pill, borrow a lot of money from your dad and spend it on scratchoffs, have a puppet show with the Turkey Carcass (I suggest scenes from Equus), get shit-house drunk on Gallon Wine and loudly cheer for whatever football team your brother cant stand, and lastly and most importantly eat something with bacon -- thinking of ME wistfully
